Q:
# A can contains 15/16 pound of vegetables. One serving of these vegetables weighs 1/4 pound. What is the total number of servings of vegetables in the can?

Accepted Solution

A:

There are 3 and 3/4 servings in the can of vegetables.

All we need to do is divide the total weight of the cans by the amount in each serving.

15/16 divided by 1/4 means we multiply 15/16 by 4/1

This will give us 60/16 which reduces to 15/4 and finally to 3 and 3/4.
